Hyundai recalls almost a million cars

Hyundai recalls almost a million cars

Hyundai (OTC:HYMLF) announces that it will recall 977,778 Sonata cars in the USA due to an issue with seat belts.

Hyundai says in government documents that a fastener for a seat belt anchor may not have been fully latched during assembly. There have been no deaths reported in relation to the seat belt glitch. Hyundai's number for the recall is 160.

And no small operation it will be as the Korean automaker has announced the recall of almost one million of those sedans for a problem with their seatbelts.

Hyundai issued a recall for 977,778 examples of its Sonata sedan.

The recall action covers Sonatas from the model years 2011 to 2014 and Sonata hybrids from 2011 to 2015. As a result, the company chose to conduct the recall, but continues to work with the supplies to investigate the issues.

The NHTSA report said the recall campaign will begin on April 7 when the Korean automaker will alert owners by mail. Hyundai will notify owners starting April 7, and dealers can inspect and fix the anchor system if needed.
